Skat­ing in Crow­land

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - YOUR TELEGRAPH -

Lo­cal his­to­rian Stephen Perry has com­piled an­other of his ex­cel­lent book­lets. It’s his sec­ond one fea­tur­ing many fas­ci­nat­ing pic­tures and sto­ries from Crow­land.

The top pic­ture shows the peace cel­e­bra­tions in 1945 in North Street with Speech­ley’s yard on the right. The next pic­ture shows four gen­er­a­tions of the Strick­land fam­ily ( from left Robert, Mau­rice, Mar­shall and Adam) ready to skate. The pic­ture left shows the Granby Head pub in North Street. Stephen told me: “I have for the last 10 years been do­ing Peter­bor­ough Lo­cal His­tory talks at the John Clare the­atre. I am do­ing the last one on Wed­nes­day(12) at 2.30pm which will be a re­flec­tion on 10 years of talks.’’
